    im using a Garmin Montana 600 and I do NOT use this Garmin for road turn by turn guidance and I bought a Garmin discovery map on an SD card from a "guy on eBay Germany" that others have bought from. The map looks like so,e high detail, low resolution image on my Montana - it's terrible plus when I've downloaded the UK TET GPX files and transferred them onto my Montana, I cannot seem to activate them on my Montana (they are tracks so I'm trying to launch them in the montana's track manager). Am I doing something wrong? I can view the GPX files in base camp on my laptop. Is it the map card that's wrong or incompatible? Are there alternatives to this "map" that anyone can recommend?

    Thanks in advance

    Thank you - are they suitable for off road / lanes / TET tracks as well?

    Yep. I use them all the time in Oz, used them in South America. I can't understand why you would pay for maps over OSM.
